Haplobank – a biobank of reversible mutant embryonic stem cells

29-Sep-2017

The Penninger lab at the IMBA developed a biobank of revertible, mutant embryonic stem cells. This cell bank – called Haplobank - contains over 100,000 mutated, conditional mouse embryonic stem cell lines, targeting about 70% of the protein-coding genome. Genetic screens have revolutionized our ...
